Q: Does this snowblower have to be put together? OR does it come assembled?

by Susan Fisher from New York on July 30, 2011

A: Susan - the Toro single stage snow blowers come "partially" assembled. You would need to fold up and tighten the handle and assemble and attach the discharge chute. Assembly should take about 20 to 30 minutes, and you would need a screwdriver and an adjustable wrench or a socket set.
by Bob, Product Expert
Q: Hi Kriss,
Confirm for me that this model 38588 is gas only?

by Wash from New York on July 01, 2011

A: This would be a gas only snow blower. The 421 signifies the four cycle.

Thanks,

Q: Hi I just have one question this model, 421QR it does not need to mix gas and oil together right?
Thank you

by Gary from New York on May 26, 2011

A: You would be correct. These are 4 cycle units and 4 cycle would be gas and oil seperate. 2 cycle would be the gas and oil mix and this would be the 221 models.

Thanks,

Q: If I purchase a new Toro Model 38588, would the carburetor problem be fixed or would I still need to bring it in for service under the recall?


by HD from New York on May 20, 2011

A: Any units with problems have been fixed already, but we do not have any units where the serials tie into the recall carb problem. So you would not have to bring into service because if you did get a model with this problem it would have already been fixed.

Thanks,

Q: I know it is early and the summer but want to pruchase new snowthorwer. Does this model Toro Power Clear™ 421QR (21") 163cc Single-Stage Snow Blower w/ Quick Chute take gasoline only instead of the gas and oil mixture?
by Tom Anderle from New York on May 11, 2011

A: The 421 would be gas only. Toro still has some two cycle blowers, but will not this coming season as they are going to a complete 4 cycle lineup.

Thanks,

Life Saver Machine!
This big-little guy arrived just in time for the latest 6-8" snowfall. That doesn't sound like much unless you are 5'2" and already exhausted from the previous 2.5 ft snow. Not to mention that the existing snow piles are over my head at this point!

Picture shows the new 421QR next to its smaller sibling, the Toro 1800. The 1800 works great but we needed more power for all this snow.

This machine started up, first pull, and took over our cleanup. Several of us single females... more

Good Luck Changing The Oil
This snow blower is great until you have to change the oil.

You have to be a magician in order to change the oil without spilling half of it.

Tough Winter Made Easy
I've used Toro single stage throwers for years. My first one lasted for over 12 years, but finally needed replacing 3 seasons ago. I replaced it with another Toro single stage, only this time a little stronger. The first and second season it was fine, but last season (out of warranty) it would throw snow no more than 3 feet once it warmed up. I had a belt replaced, and it worked fine for the next storm, which was the last of last season.

Figuring I was all set for this year, I started it... more

I Can't Find Anything Wrong With It
Starts great at -10 below, throws snow a good distance, cleans down to pavement with the replaceable rubber blade. The snowblower is light weight, adjusts nozzle direction easily, I just can't find anything wrong with it !!!

No Longer Frustrated In Frankfort
In the worst of the major snowstorms of the 2011 winter, my two stage 5 HP tracked snowthrower died. I had tried to forgive over the recent years its clogging, the fact that it could not throw snow farther than a few feet, and that it was noisy, heavy to steer, and took up so much room in the garage.

The great neighbors let me borrow their Toro. It was small, had this Quick Chute feature that allowed me to direct the snow with one hand, it was fast and dealt with 12" of snow - plus the... more

Second Snowfall And Doesn't Work
This is my second review and the TORO is still a piece of junk. This is our second snowfall since receiving the 421QR and it won't run. It runs for a few seconds and stalls. Wait a few minutes and it starts but, stalls again after a few seconds. This is never ending. The machine has new gas, it's properly primed, and the choke is set correctly.

I got a lemon. Need to find a authorized TORO repair center. If that doesn't work, a good old 10 pound sledge will fix the problem. Luckily... more

Waiting For The Big Storm
So far the only snow we had was 3-12 inches, however the Toro started up with one pull and cleared my 3 car driveway and walkways around my house front and back in 45 min. All I can say is bring it on! I am ready.

The Toro cover is very well made and sturdy, it goes on and off easily I keep the snowblower outside near the back door so the cover is important, the people at Snow Blowers Direct got me the Toro in 3 days when none of the big box stores had anything in-stock and could not tell... more

Super Blower
Excellent machine. Starts first pull every time--unbelievable but true! Uses up about a quarter of the gas of the comparable Toro 2-stroke, no smoke or smell, plenty of power, handled the 16 -20" snows this winter (2010-2011) with absolutely no difficulty.

Quick chute is easy to use and works perfectly to direct the snow where you want it to go. Assembly was easy. No faults. Really glad I sold my old Toro single stage 2 stroke

2 Stage Performance, Single Stage Weight
Works great- starts right up and has not bogged down yet through two Northeast storms. Used it up to 8 inches and 14 inches at the bottom of the driveway from plow build up. NO problems. Great blower if you don't want to deal with a big bulky two stage.

Terrible Waste Of Money!
My Toro is a piece of junk! The machine looks good coming out of the box. My first problem started when I tried to put the handle in its extended position. The left end of the handle was bent approximately three inches from the end. I called Snow Blowers Direct about the problem and I was given the name of a authorized dealer. I did not want to bend the handle back into shape fearing it would void any warranty. I took it to the dealer who said I could bend it back myself and it would not... more

Gas Leak From Carb
Just like others, this machine 421QR was delivered and I did the setup and it started right up. Cleared my driveway and walk and parked it. A few hours later I smelled gas and went into the garage to find gas leaking onto my garage floor from the carb on this blower. I called Toro and they said I could get a warranty fix at a dealer and they gave me a number of a "dealer" that was disconnected. Tried others on my own but all too busy to take care of my gas leak.

So anyway. My... more
